Presents Painted In Disguise

I LOVE this guest post by Darren MacKenzie, as I have lived the truth in it. He makes some great points about storms in life – how we can weather these, and how sometimes they are “presents painted in disguise'” IF they put us back on track…

If we can only free the ego and focus on what is (acceptance), life would be a better more chilled out place. I like the analogy of the blowing tree and how it stands strong irrespective of the many gales, storms and hurricanes it has to contend with, not once does it complain or think ‘why me’. In saying that though – and as far as ego identification is concerned – crisis (health scare/divorce/bankruptcy) is sometimes all that is needed to put you back on the right path, and painted as a present in disguise.
